Hey everyone, just keeping my journal up to date with my newest tutorial and also my older freebies too ;) 

Firstly I just wanted to mention that I'm streaming more often these days over on my twitch channel, where I answer lots of questions! And all streams are archived over on my youtube channel :) 

My latest tut is now available through gumroad.
The video tutorial is 1.15 hours long and covers everything from the initial sketch to final colour, covering composition, colour, value, layer effects etc. Pretty much everything I could think to talk about! Experienced painters will likely know all of this and more, but I always try to cover everything for the sake of any beginners watching. It's quite different from previous tutorials as this is a full blown scene, rather than just a stand alone character.

* You can also grab my brush pack for free, along with an art chat video through gumroad.

I have more tutorials available through my website as well!

And lastly, another freebie is a terribly old tutorial of mine. It was the first one I made and whilst I think it's pretty outdated now, it may still be helpful to some. 

Cheers guys!

Your ACOMAF fanart led me to discover the series.  My interest was first piqued when you posted 'The Court of Dreams,' and after having my breath taken away by 'The Inner Circle' and finally 'Starfall,' I caved and bought ACOTAR.  Your depictions of the characters are absolutely beautiful.  Thank you for sharing your work!!

Sure enough, you look like your art! So gorgeous.
You are my biggest idol and inspiration ever. I aspire to paint anywhere close to as lovely as you do!
Your work is impeccable. I could stare at it for hours wondering how you did it. Keep it up!

I fell in love with The Old Astronomer  - an amazing picture and the poetry behind it! 

I was wondering: would you allow me to use this picture as my facebook titelpicture ( i do not know the correct term in english, iam sorry- i mean the big picture above your name in fb) - i would give you credit in the picture discription of course ! 

I hope you can understand my question since english is not my native language. 
Best wishes !

Your Throne of Glass art is amazing. I'm looking forward to read "A court of Thorns and Roses", so to watch the matching art you made.
Thank you for your pieces of art. When needed, a mug full of ale will await you in Terrasen. First round's on me. ;)
